Xiaomi is the fourth largest smartphone manufacturer in the world, but is mainly active in Asia. However, the company also wants to break through internationally and is expanding rapidly, especially in Europe. Own stores have been opened in Spain, Italy and France, while the appliances are now also officially in stores in several other European countries. Today it was the turn of Great Britain.
The Chinese company opened its own store in the UK today and immediately announced that the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro will be launched worldwide. The Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro may not immediately ring a bell, but it is the device that previously appeared under the name Mi 8 Explorer Edition in China. For the worldwide release the name has been changed to the Mi 8 Pro. This device must immediately compete with OnePlus devices and other 'affordable' flagships.
